About me

Hi, I'm Maddi and I'm a Medical Science student at the University of Exeter after having acheived top grades at A Level. I also took a YASS course at the Open University on the biochemistry of medicines so I can explain to you how the theories and concepts learnt in class apply to everyday situations to make the subject a bit more interesting! 

I am an Italian native speaker as well as knowing very good knowledge of Spanish; I can help with grammar, vocabulary and essay structure. I am passionate about Biology and Chemistry and I have lots of creative and interactive ways to keep you engaged in the session! For example, we can create mind maps and concept maps to create and overview of the topics for revision as well as answering short answer questions to see if the concepts learnt are sinking in.

I have tutored younger children in school before and I would love to help you acheive the best possible grades so that you can go to university or be accepted for an internship or placement.

Thank you for taking the time to read this,

Maddi

Questions Maddalena has answered

What is the difference between an endocrine and exocrine gland?

An endocrine gland secretes its products, for example hormones, directly into the blood. An example of an endocrine gland is the adrenal gland which secretes adenaline made in the adrenal medulla directly into the blood.

 

An exocrine gland secretes its products for example enzymes, into ducts that lead to the target tissue. For example the salivary gland secretes saliva into the collecting duct which leads to the mouth.

It's important to note that the pancreas performs both endocrine and exocrine functions. It releases insulin and glucagon directly into the blood (endocrine) and also secretes pancreatic fluid into the pacreatic duct which leads to the duodenum (exocrine).
